SR 590, Section 654, over Jones Creek Bridge Replacement
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to a virtual plans display for the replacement of the existing State-owned bridge that carries SR 0590 over Jones Creek in Salem Township, Wayne County, PA.
The purpose of this virtual plans display is to introduce the project and receive public input regarding any questions or concerns with the project. The plans display includes digital picture boards and a questionnaire.
The project will include replacing the existing 43' long T-beam bridge with a new spread box beam structure on integral abutments as well as approach roadway widening and drainage updates.
The existing bridge was built in 1930. It is classified as poor condition. Approximately 2300 vehicles a day use the bridge, on average.
The purpose of this project is to provide a safe and efficient access across the stream with a structure that meets current design standards and carry current legal loads.
Construction is currently anticipated to begin during the spring of 2023 and continue into the 2024 construction season.
The plans display will be held in-person and online. The in-person plans display will be held at the Salem Township municipal building, located at 15 Township BLDG Road, Hamlin, PA 18427 on June 14 at 5:30 p.m. The digital version of the plans display will be available from June 14, 2022 to July 14, 2022.
